program description

Mozart’s flashy horn quintet is a genial delight, showing graceful partnerships between the musicians; followed by the definitive French impressionist sound of flute and harp. The evening concludes with passion: this piano quintet’s emotion caused extreme jealousy in the composer’s wife!
